AKG Scarecrow has a Name!

The American Textile History Museum, home of the Atlanta Knitting Guild's Scarecrow, has selected the winning name. That's OZ at the left, shown on location in the museum. The winning name was submitted by Louise Pugh of Boxford, MA. I'm sure OZ will be quite happy in his new home, being loved and photographed by many visitors in the years to come.

Big Happenings at Sock Summit 2009

A video on the Oregonian website records knitters breaking a world record for most people knitting at the same time. The previous record, from Australian, was for 256 knitters. I can't help thinking that there have surely been times when we had at least 100 people knitting simultaneously at an AKG meeting.

Also, this gets me thinking (plotting?) about STITCHES South 2010. Anybody have any clever ideas?

Thank you to Barbara Argo for the link!
